The conditions set forth below constitute the terms and conditions on which all property is offered for sale. Bidding at auction, whether present, by absentee bid or Live Auctioneers, the buyer agrees to be bound by these terms. Your bid is a contract.

All items are sold to the highest bidder as acknowledged by the auctioneer. The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid; to advance the bidding at his discretion; and, in the event of a dispute between two bidders, determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the lot in dispute. Should there be any dispute after sale, the record of final sale shall be conclusive. All sales are final.
Absentee bids will be executed as a convenience to the customer; however, the auction house will not be responsible for any errors or failure to execute bids. (Absentee bids and telephone bids are subject to an in-house buyer's premium of 18-24%) Prospective absentee bidders should consult the bid increment scale to ensure their bids conform to our printed bidding increments. A minimum bid of $25.00 required on each absentee bid. In the event a left bid is higher than competing bids in the auction hall, the left bid will win the item at the next bidding increment, not necessarily the full amount of the bid. All auction sales and telephone bidding are recorded. The auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any lot before or at the sale. Some items offered may be subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price below which such lot will not be sold, estimates do not necessarily reflect reserves. We may implement such reserves by bidding on behalf of the consignor.

First time buyers must pay by cash (In House Only), guaranteed funds or credit card. Payment must be made within five (5) days of the sale date.
A service charge of 1.5% will be added each month to unpaid balances beginning thirty (30) days after the sale date. Failure to complete payment within the time allocated may result in legal proceedings and most definitely will result in no-issuance of a bidding number in the future.

If a check fails to clear after the second deposit, the purchaser will be held responsible for any and all fees incurred during the collection process, i.e., legal and bank fees.
